Demi Lovato has done a pretty good job, in her very young career, of keeping her name out of the gossip pages. But recently, rumors began to circulate that 16-year-old Lovato was dating Miley Cyrus’ 20-year-old brother Trace, of Metro Station.
Although she attempted to clear up the rumor on her Twitter page, we wanted to get the lowdown straight from Lovato herself.
“I’m single! Yeah, I’m definitely single,” she told MTV News. When asked who she would love to date, she left the answer open: “I can’t say!
With that rumor cleared up, we wanted to see what other kinds of crazy stuff Lovato might have read about herself online. She admitted that she doesn’t know what people have to say about her, because she doesn’t read that stuff to begin with.
“I try not to listen to rumors,” she said. “Rumors are stupid. They’re not true. I mean, of course you get stuff like that all the time. You read it online, and you’re just like, ‘Why did they even make that up?’ But, I mean, I don’t really remember them, ’cause they’re not important to me.”
But there is one person she wishes people would stop writing about: her little sister and “Desperate Housewives” actress 7-year-old Madison De La Garza. “She’s great. She’s a beautiful little girl, and she asks me for advice sometimes,” she said. “She’s gotten her little taste of haters online and things like that, and just teaching her how to deal with it has actually gotten us closer.”
